Old readers may remember my article and my endeavor to Create Multi Row Panorama Head Ver. II back in November of 2011. Nonetheless, this was already an improvement of an earlier version introduced one year earlier in November 2010. At that time there were very few modular and Arca-Swiss compatible multi-row Panoramic heads around.
Plus the ones that existed were quite expensive, so there was room for a modular solution that would be easy to transform into some other device, using the same rails.

A new large Linear Motion Macro Rail comes to complete the family of Hejnar Photo MS5P macro rails introduced in 2016.
The Hejnar MS5PS featuring a side Metric Scale is meant to fill the gap between the original MS5P_8 and the top MS5DSP with Digital Scale, as a more economical solution with scales.

Following the update and renovation of almost all of Hejnar Photo clamps last November, it was also time for the most classic and best selling clamp of the Hejnar Photo line.
So Hejnar F362b with a 2.375" (6 cm) jaw length, was introduced with a little delay this year, two months after the other clamps and five years after its previous update Hejnar Photo Updated F62Ab Quick Release Clamp Review.

It's been a long time since Hejnar Photo has introduced the D027 Arca Style Quick Release plate. It was originally introduced in 2014 to cover the fixed lens Finepix models designated Dedicated D027 QR Plate for Fuji X100/S.
What is interesting though, is that after thorough testing it is declared directly compatible with the newer Fujifilm X-T20 which seems to share the same smaller base footprint.

Hejnar Photo has just introduced a new camera plate expanding their coverage to the medium format camera field but not only.
It follows a simple design of a quite large square camera plate with a bidirectional Arca style dovetail. What makes it differ though, is its larger 3/8"-16 mounting screw compared to the usual 1/4"-20 size.

Yet asnother L Bracket was released a few days ago by Sunwfayfoto. The PSL-a7RIII as denoted by the model name, is a custom Arca-Swiss® compatible L Bracket dedicated to the third iteration of SONY's high end full frame mirrorless camera the α7R III.
Although quite similar in model name the design of the new Sunwayfoto L bracket differs quite a lot from the previous models especially in the vertical side rail section and its positioning.

Metabones® Adapters are getting more and more popular with Interchangeable Lens Compact Cameras, since users are able to use their existing lens models coming from manufacturers like Canon and Nikon, with proven high standards.
As I have mentioned in the New Feet and Extenders for Metabones Adapter from Hejnar Photo article, a couple of years ago, current Metabones adapter models do feature a tripod mounting foot, some conforming to an Arca-compatible style. However, there are still some restrictions and limitations faced when users want to combine them with larger diameter lenses, Tilt-Shift lenses or even a Battery Grip.
